The US paperback edition of The Child by Fiona Barton is published today, with the hardback having been both an NPR Best Book of the Year and a Bustle Best Thriller Novel of the Year in 2017.

When an evening newspaper reveals the remains of a baby unearthed at a construction site, The Child’s story will be told…

The follow-up to Fiona Barton’s explosive thriller, The Widow, has been an incredible success in its own right, achieving critical acclaim and international editions sold in over 20 countries.

Lee Child described it as “Tense, tantalizing, and ultimately very satisfying…definitely one of the year’s must-reads”, while USA Today called it “a perfect blend of beach read and book club selection, […] it keeps the reader guessing right to the end.”
